Publisher's Summary

Secrets of the past hold the key to the future.

Joseph Bridgeman is now an official member of the Continuum, a group of time travelers that heal the past to protect the future. When a rare focus object is stolen and put up for sale, Joe jumps at the chance to retrieve it, but a simple auction turns into a dangerous new mission that takes him farther back in time than he’s ever been before.

Alone and unprepared in ancient China, Joe must not only complete the mission, but also unravel the mystery of a secretive organization known as Extempero. Who are they? And why do they seem intent on destroying everything the Continuum has achieved so far?

When all hope appears lost, an unexpected ally helps Joe unlock a unique form of time-travel loop that sees him flung into the past yet again. Caught up in a shocking natural disaster, Joe must face a terrible choice, a decision that will have far-reaching consequences for the Continuum and a delicate future that hangs in the balance.

better and better

as a truck driver i listen to a lot of books (several each week). Most are sci/fi.
One thing I have noticed is that Nick Jones is on another level as a writer in compared to many of the others I follow.
I continue to be impressed with his work. Can’t wait for more.
And, of course, Ray Porter is still the best.

Dear Audible, it’s great that we have the ability to follow authors now, but we also need the ability to follow the narrators. I would never have discovered Nick Jones if it were not for Ray Porter.

Can’t Wait for the next one

I’m so glad I found this author and series. And the fact that Ray Porter is the narrator really makes it enjoyable. Whenever I listen to one of his books, I feel like I’m taking a tiny vacation and I’m going on an adventure.

The Quantum Chain!

Terrific audiobook. This book had so much going on. The Focus Objects that are used for time travel are being used by a mysterious group! Can Joseph find out what is going on and fix the damage? This object is a very antique d pottery of a Chinese horse!

A book too far

Oh dear. I did not return this, but I considered it. Ray Porter’s excellence stopped me. He is divine.
I loved the first book, and it should have ended there. The second book was a reach, this one is halfway over the shark, ruining a nice story. It’s so bogged down in descriptions it loses the story, but when it gets to San Francisco it got personal.
I’m a San Francisco Giants fan. I was watching the Series. Now I wonder what he got wrong about Ancient China. What a bunch of melodramatic twaddle.

Mind blowing and absolutely loved the whole series

I was disappointed to read the last review by RW in relation to the narrator Ray Porter!
In my opinion, Ray is one of the best narrators in the business. If I see Ray Porter's name next the narration of a book I know it is worth a listen.
Although an American actor/narrator he does a really good interpretation of different accents from around the world.
The whole series of The Joseph Bridgeman books are absolutely amazing and stunning, Ray Porter brings the characters alive and I can only hope Nick Jones will write more and more, please.

Why? Good grief I don't understand...

Why Audible decided to use an American narrator for a deeply British book. Much as I really like his voice for US authors, Ray Porter's attempts at Welsh, South African and Australian accents is truly cringe-worthy and so very distracting. And as the voice of the primary character, he does not sound like a Londoner as obviously written. It's a big mistake, which is a shame because the imagination of Nick Jones is remarkable and he is crafting an excellent wibbly wobbly, timey wimey, convolution of time travel plotting. This book would have been so much better with a different narrator, I deeply wish it was read with the voice Nick Jones had had in his head when he wrote his books.

Brilliant series

Enjoyed these immensely from book 1 through to book 4. Sad to see them end really, author did leave scope for a fifth so maybe in the future…. Nothing bad to say. Reader is marvellous, plots/storylines brilliant with humour & plot twists, plenty of. Loved the main characters in all 4 books. Think I’ll enjoy coming back to these!

A match made in heaven!

Ray Porter brings so much life to this amazing series written by the fabulous Nick Jones. When you get so lost in a story you don’t even notice the bath water has gone stone cold, and you’re holding your breath between sentences, then you know both author and narrator have done an exceptional job of transporting you to another time and place (pun intended.) I just have to wait a year or so for the next instalment. **Big sigh** Back to reality in the meantime ;)

I've really enjoyed this whole series so far. More please!!
The story line is original and great concept, I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Ray Porter and he really brings to books alive for me. Definitely a recommendation from me.

I am just loving this story and the characters. I feel really connected to the outcome and what drives each character. The story is told in such a unique complex but easily understood manner I have just been engrossed by this and the prior two books. Well worth a listen

Another interesting and action filled instalment

Joe certainly has his head and hands full in this latest volume of his time travel story. Running the gamut of both the physical and emotional spectrum to be left with ever more increasing questions and too few answers. Looking forward to the next instalment on his journey backwards and forwards through time. Ray Porter again does a superb job of narrating this story. Yes the Aussie accent is dodgy but when is it not? And it’s all of two sentences.

The Tension Builds

The story and the time travelling are becoming more complex. It sounds like an amazing experience. Nick Jones has thought this through to the nth degree. Ray Porter does an excellent job.
